Eocene Beds of the Punjab Salt Range

MR. E. S. PINFOLD and I have recently made a special examination, on behalf of the Attock Oil Company, of the Eocene beds of the Punjab Salt Range, with the view of determining their exact age. It will be remembered that opinions as to this have varied greatly in the past, some geologists referring them to the Laki, others to the Khirthar, while others again have shelved the question of their precise age by calling them “Hill” limestones or “Nummulitic beds”, etc.
